issue, give them credit, it goes for the blood and gut stuff, simply nowhere is the issues. for example, parroting the line that paul ryan is killing grandma, or falling for the nonsense that sequestration is going to lead to bedlam at the airport. or eventually mr. ed on the dinner plate. this is scary stuff but it's wrong. remember what is really going on here, my friends. if we only use a little map here and we in the media did our jobs here. no one is cutting anything. this still leads us with criminals more in debt a decade from now. it's true. the government is still growing no, matter what we do now. you don't hear that, of course, because it's not flashy or exciting or bloody. it doesn't sound exciting that paul ryan is slowing the pace
2:01pm
of government. but paul ryan forcing millions to go on food stamps or pushing granny off a cliff -- i just heard this one. he is actually killing thousands of seniors. that is wrong. so i know. that the club. there is nothing wrong with having a point of view but everything wrong not bringing up all the point of view. it takes two parties to tango. so you can't just blame one. or one side is stubborn or jeopardizes a deal but the other is not when it jeopardizes the same deal because it opposes spending cuts. i know i keep pounding this, again and again. a lot of you seem to think it gets old. the only reason i do so, day in and day out is to remind everyone that it is through the prism of the media that we get a sense of what is going
2:02pm
on. my fear is what is not going on. what is reported poorly. we have ware of the media that gloms on to the line "we don't have a problem." at that moment, take it from the scoping at this picnic, something stinks. when the media is in cahoots with the folks who say no problem. big problem. good night. >> kimberly: hello, i'm kimberly guilfoyle with bob beckel, eric bolling, dana perino, greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> kimberly: "tonight" show host jay leno is winning the war but he may have heard the reports that he is out on the "tonight show." he is taking shots tonight. >> you know the legend of st. patrick, right? he drove all the saints out of ireland and they came to the
2:03pm
united states and became nbc executives. fascinating story. to say they are -- signists say they are getting closer to do "jurassic park" style cloning of extinct species. ones that were once thought extinct could be brought back for the dead. there is hope for nbc. it could turn around. >> kimberly: well, nbc confirmed a new studio for fallen in new york but didn't say if it will move to the "tonight show" to the big apple. fallon joked about the rumor last night. >> before we get started i have to talk about the rumors today that says i'll be moving up to 11:30 or as my parents call it "yeah, it's still too late." the rumors are true. nbc is turning "tonight show" to a diving competition. >> kimberly: okay. are you a jimmy fallon lover? >> eric: did you hear the sarcasm in the show? did you get the joke? as my parents would say it's still too late. he is trying to say he has a younger demographic or going
2:04pm
after the younger demographic. jay is great. people love jay leno. but jimmy fallon is fantastic as well as jimmy kimmel. the interesting thing, the three late night -- the three guys on late night now, the three shows will compete. they are almost identically rated now. they all have about 7800,000 in the -- 700,000 in the key demo, advertising demo and $3 million each in total viewers each night. >> kimberly: what is the motivate factor? his ratings are good and consistently performing for network. some think perhaps he is too vanilla or too conservative. bring in fallon more beloved by hollywood liberals. >> dana: you know how people say you never really know what goes on inside a marriage? that could be the case here. >> greg: leno and fallon are married? i had no idea. i'm totally for that. it's beautiful. >> dana: no, i meant between jay leno and the executives is what i was talking about.
2:05pm
i'm a big fan of jay leno. i had a chance to meet him when we did the book tour after the presidency, mrs. bush and president bush went there. it was the most fun, he is -- i think the reason jay leno has done so well over so many years, decades, is that the whole family can enjoy it. >> kimberly: sure. >> dana: not to say they won't enjoy jimmy fallon. i like craig ferguson. he is funny. good clean fun. >> kimberly: greg, what do you got for me? >> greg: i did research in to the feud with jay leno and producers and look up may 12, he made an obama joke and then he made another one, another obama joke on september 6. that is two obama jokes. clearly he pushed it too far. networks will send him to reeducation camp for required therapy. you know what is funny? talking about a tv schedule, like appointment schedule, it's like talking about a dead relative. it seems as relevant as the bicycles with the giant and
2:06pm
the little wheels. nobody watches tv at the time it's on anymore. you watch "justify" two days later. i watch "homeland" in bed with martinis. we're adjusting the content. >> kimberly: is that the same? >> greg: very funny. wedy interest content differently. we're oh long -- i'm saying we are no longer passively watching late night television. people watch "red eye" and they tweet throughout the whole thing. that is the future. melding of the web and television. soon, basically our eyes will be the universal remote, you know? >> kimberly: bob? >> bob: i haven't seen the late show since johnny carson. >> kimberly: perfect. >> bob: i'm a little out of this. i do listen to the few things i hear about leno. i think his jokes are funny. is it true that the guys all had jokesters to meet with them every day and come up with stuff? >> eric: 30 writers. >> bob: they do? >> eric: sure.
2:07pm
>> kimberly: imagine how funny we'd be if we had that. greg has it. >> bob: i don't -- if it's no big difference in ratings, why -- i know he got mad before. he was taken off for conan o'brien and moved to 10:00. so there was obviously a rub there. does anybody have any idea what the have you been here now with nbc now? >> eric: they are looking five and ten years down the road, right? leno is 15 -- how long has he been? >> kimberly: but why put him out now? he's funny. i get his jokes. >> eric: tv is tough. entertainment is cut-throat business and looking down the road. >> kimberly: listen to this clip of leno. he has something to say about president obama. >> president obama is now in israel. it is his first trip to israel as president. he did not bring along joe biden. the president trip to israel is called a high profile trip. not as high profile as playing
2:08pm
golf with tiger woods but still high profile. it's not that great. >> kimberly: all right. too conservative? what that is what some suggest. >> eric: someone tweeted maybe he's pulled off because he is focusing his comedy toward the center part of the country, rather than the two coasts which are more liberal. i don't know. maybe. johnny carson, every single late night host goes after the president. i don't know why we are calling him out for going after obama. >> greg: it's a disgrace that none of the jokes involve sarah palin. habit he read the script? that -- hasn't he read the script? that's what you. do make fun of sarah palin, someone not a president, exgovernor of alaska. that is the person you go after. not after obama. i have to go back to this. i don't care who is at late night. i have a feeling that most young america don't either. nobody is taking this -- nobody is watching these shows the way we watched it when we were young. people aren't going and -- these numbers are a lot lower than they were 20 years ago.
2:09pm
people are on the laptops and they are watching the stuff on the plane. they are notdy guesting it same way -- notdy guesting i no. >> dana: i used to set my alarm in case i fell asleep before arseno hall. i had a tv in my room. >> eric: but the game is high-stake poker for these guys. >> bob: one thing, abc developing an app -- is that what you call it? app? you can put it and you can follow all of their shows on your ipad or phone. literally to me that is a big step, revolutionary step. >> greg: i am telling you, if you are going to watch tv at the time the show is on is the equivalent of a land line. >> kimberly: behind the game. >> dana: "jeopardy" and "wheel of fortune." >> greg: you accommodate it. watch "the five" at 5:00, great.
2:10pm
but some people work so they watch at 7:00. it's greater freedom to do what you want. so late night is less and less rel vent, except for "red eye" at 3:00 a.m. >> kimberly: you brought up something, tweet transition a few minutes ago about tina fey, sarah palin. they had tina fey on and listen to this thought. >> you know, jimmy, i believe that if everybody had guns, then there would be fewer guns in the stores. >> same-sex marriage. what is your view on that? >> well, the bible says it's gross. >> marriage, is meant for people, who wear different kind of swimsuits. >> kimberly: greg? >> greg: it's greet see east and west coast elitists making fun of other people because they're different. imagine if they made fun of other people who were different, and what it would be like?
2:11pm
i don't mind tina fey. the other guy interviewing her. james lipton. he asked her to do it. so he is the turd in this punch bowl. i feel bad for tina fey. like harry reams, the porn star that died yesterday and will be forever known as a porn star. no matter what tina faye does she will be known as the sarah palin impersonator. she will never be known for anything else and she is talented. >> bob: she set herself up for a lot of this. >> greg: she is not the leader of the free world. >> dana: but there is a reason they do it. see the laughter? it's why they do the things, shows to get ratings about certain topics that you might think other people wouldn't be interested in. the thing that drives people crazy about sarah palin, she put herself out there and willing to take a punch. she was able to take a punch and she could punch back in a way not too aggressive. so that is why she has been able to survive. if you put yourself out there
2:12pm
and you can't take a shred of criticism, you are basically not going to have a career in politics or anywhere else. >> eric: she is taking more punchs than anyone deserves to take. as far as tina fey, actor studio was very funny. she is extremely talented. she did that impromptu, improve off the top of her head. she is talented. >> kimberly: i did that for geraldo show. he had me dress up as sarah palin. halloween. >> greg: it was at his apartment. that was really weird. >> kimberly: getting weirder by the minute. let's talk about celebrities dand they get preferential treatment? bob is expert on this being a big-time celebrity in new york. >> bob: celebrity, yeah, a big-time rehab celebrity. >> kimberly: talk to us about lindsay lohan. >> bob: once again, she has been sent to a lackdown rehab. big deal. 90 days. she has been caught again drinking. i have said this for a long time. this woman is going to kill herself or she will kill
2:13pm
somebody else. you have to hit bottom to ever get well. bottom to her ought to be sent to jail, solitaire and put there for a year. she has broken enough of the deals with the judges that -- >> dana: that is quite a punishment. we can't waterboard a terrorist with imminent intel but solitair solitary confinemea year? >> greg: remember what celebrity means? it means celebrating something. you don't, we can't celebrate the people. the only people that celebrate them are the bah lives working overtime on the cases. i have no sympathy for the people. i don't even feel bad when they die. it worry about little old ladies with illnesses. that are sick. my mother. people that actually deserve compassion, people who do not bring the pain and suffering on themselves. >> bob: greg, she hasn't hit bottom. here is the problem. she is always bailed out. that is what happens with celebrities. what is his name?
2:14pm
brown. >> kimberly: bobby brown. >> bob: sentenced to 90 days for the third dui. gets out in nine hours. he is the guy when you get three dwis, you have a bad drinking problem. he ought to be at least put in a rehab for 28 days. >> kimberly: what about the little girl? >> dana: why doesn't he have a driver? >> eric: this is planned. lindsay lohan was scheduled to go to court, i think she had a 9:00 court appearance. she showed up, landed at 8:30 in morning knowing she wouldn't make the court date. they are doing this to stay relevant in the news. they are only relevant in the news because they are not relevant in the acting community. >> bob: the judges are not supposed to be relevant in the news. they ought to sentence her to -- how many times have they said if you come back one more time, you are going to jail? it doesn't happen. >> bob: look at bobby brown -- >> kimberly: he spent more time in the step items or less express checkout than if you are a celebrity. >> greg: dana perino minute mentoring. why don't you offer to mentor lindsay lohan?
2:15pm
>> dana: yeah. i'm sure she would love my advice. >> greg: i think she would. >> kimberly: we are all about outreach at "the five." coming up next -- >> dana: a handwritten note. >> kimberly: directly ahead, dr. ben carson made a splash at cpac last weekend. now a lot of conservatives want him to run for the white house in 2016. he is not ruling it out. we take a closer look at the man everyone is talking about. later, another man everyone is talking about. you got him. mr. bob beckel. he is not happy about cbs airing communist propaganda from the reality show "the amazing race." >> bob: i am so outraged by this i can't believe it. cbs is idiotic, stupid. if they can't do better than that to have people go to a memorial where americans died you ought to get off the network. take that show and shove it! >> kimberly: you heard it here. he is is not stopping until we get answers from cbs. you will hear more from bob coming up next. ♪ ♪

2:22pm
when those two things come together in 2016, the republicans have a really tough job. there is a reason that there has been nobody from the complete outside come in and run for president for either party. you to have a network and an organization. one of the best things i think that dr. ben carson can do, if he is seriously considering this, is to enjoy a little bit of spotlight now. not every tv show right now. find some people that can advise you and go out to the cabin in the woods for three months and think. get four stages deep in the question. the problem with the republicans is they fall in and out of love with people in if hours. nobody can have any staying power. now we don't like rand paul because he his policy on immigration is bad. they get all thrown up in the air. >> eric: greg? >> greg: yeah. okay. i want to go through the -- these are all the recent targets, by what i call the
